AER Spring INformal Campout, 2006


AER Spring INformal Campout, 2006

To while away the time until the IKV Melota's Fall Tournament, the KAG ship IKV Melota had an INformal campout to fill the open Spring.

This was a seriously fun event.

We gathered at Cedar Hill State Park at a rondel of campsites and occupied the entire cul-de-sac. Banners were flown in the center of the rondel for the mundanes to see. We had some mundane guests and a visiting Guest that may join the ship. Having no structure, this was a case of visiting from camp to camp to enjoy whatever was going on. Later in the daylight, there was some casual fighting in the rondel to entertain the mundanes and guests and to break in our new recruit. Mac's camp had dominoes going all nasty and heavy. Salek's camp was the entry point to the lake if you wished to swim. Dragen and Rader's camp had coffee and coffee talk going a lot of the time. But the 'tokQs and Gimzos had the commons that attracted most of the fun. There was bridge playing after dark along with some other interesting events. For the first time, we had singing. A bard from Amtgard came out as a guest and alternated between casual fighting in the camp and singing. We wound up listening and singing with him from 2100-0200! Qlu and Gaavin alternated songs and the rest of just joined in if we knew the song.

Being a dry area, there were no Bloodwine Ceremonies but the overall fellowship and bonding was still there.

No structure. No plans or timetables. Just do whatever you want to do. It was a casual weekend that was very relaxing.

Strength and Honor
